There is a new “minion” movie coming out on July 10. I liked the first two for their cleverness and the minion characters. They began as slaves of an evil master and then found freedom and the will to do what is good.

Since the word servant has no meaning in our culture perhaps we Christians could use minion for our identity in Christ. After all, we are small, active creatures who have been given our freedom from evil and an eager desire to do good things. It’s just a thought.
